Critical Injury Accident

Incident Date: 06/30/2013

Incident Time: 2:58 PM

Incident Location: Illinois Road and Magnavox Way

Victims: Juvenile Female / Critical Condition, Adult Female / Stable Condition and an Adult Male / Stable Condition

 

On Sunday, 06/30/2013, at approximately 2:58 PM, the City of Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the intersection of Magnavox Way and Illinois Road reference a vehicle crash with injuries. Officers arrived on scene and discovered four vehicles were involved in the crash.

Preliminary reports indicate three of the vehicles were traveling eastbound on Illinois Road and were stopped for the traffic light at Magnavox Way. The fourth vehicle involved was traveling eastbound on Illinois Road, failed to stop for the traffic light, and rear ended the other three vehicles that were stopped for the traffic light.

Occupants in two of the vehicles involved did not receive any injuries as a result of the crash. Two occupants in one of the vehicles involved were transported to a local hospital by paramedics. The female/adult victim was transported by paramedics in stable condition and the female/juvenile victim (age ten) was transported by paramedics in serious condition. The juvenile’s condition was later downgraded to critical condition by a physician at the hospital. The male/adult driver that rear ended the vehicles had a complaint of pain and was transported by family members to a local hospital. It has not been determined if any of the victims were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. At this time, it does not appear alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash.

A portion of the eastbound lanes on Illinois Road were closed while the Fatal Alcohol Crash Team (F.A.C.T) investigated the crash and processed the scene. The lanes were reopened at approximately 6:48 PM. This incident remains under investigation by the City of Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

  • “The President’s doomsday scenarios are of his own choosing,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., argued in response to Cutter’s email. “The sequester will cut 2.3 percent, or $85 billion, from the massive $3.55 trillion the federal government is projected to spend this year alone. To put that percentage in perspective, we borrow that much money every 28 days. If the President can’t cut that much, he’ll never cut anything.”

  • One thing we always check for when coming into a new city, is construction cranes on the horizon. Lack of cranes on a city's horizon suggests complacency and lack of progress or movement.
